Birth: Feb. 14, 1947
Death: Mar. 29, 2011

Leslie went to be with the Lord on March 29, 2011. She was born in Washington, DC, on February 14, 1947, the daughter of Chester and Edna Wasser Kneller. Raised in the suburbs of Chicago and Philadelphia, Leslie graduated with a B.S. in film and television from Boston University. She used that education to spend her career in advertising, where she was a copywriter, TV producer and associate creative director at the Weightman Group in Philadelphia. Leslie won many advertising awards in both Philadelphia and New York for creative work. In 1976 she married the love of her life, Charles Coffey. They spent many happy years together living in Philadelphia and Bryn Mawr, PA. Upon retirement, they spent part of the year at their home in Cat Cay, Bahamas, where they enjoyed fishing on their boat, the Java Lady, a twin engine, which Leslie ran. She was also involved in writing and producing the island newsletter and helping friends re-start the island boutique. In 1997, Leslie and Charlie decided to sell their homes and move to Vero Beach, FL where they were members of Christ Church and Bent Pine Golf Club. Wintering in Vero Beach, they enjoyed summer homes first in Herman's Island, Nova Scotia, and then in Brevard, NC.
